Pink sandy beaches

Grab your straw bag...you know the one, the one with some sand still left in it

from your last visit to a pink, sandy beached,

tropical island.....

follow me to Harbour Island, which lies just a short distance off the coast of Eleuthera. To the lovely boutique hotel The Landing ....

Designed by India Hicks, famed daughter of David Hicks...

This small, gorgeous hotel has 7 Caribbean inspired guest rooms,

with mahogany furniture and crisp Ralph Lauren linens




The color...ahh, the color in the reading room

Of course, it boasts a luscious restaurant featuring
locally caught fresh seafood...
Lots of space to just hang....I love that part!
and let your blood pressure lower...just a tad...

and while you are chillin' at the Landing,
you may be lucky enough
to be invited to India's
own personal guest house....
and meet her potcake dog,
who happily claims all fuscia chairs as his...


but you may sit on the graphic chair with David Hicks designed fabric...Lucky you.


Would you look at these palms!.....Heaven


Just perfect...
night night......sweet dreams.......

Thanks for peeking you all!!

And yes, Potcake dogs ARE a real thing! They are local to the differnt islands, and named potcake from feeding them the scrapings at the bottom of a pot...check it out:
